8 Ideas for Enchanting Children’s Bedrooms

Are you thinking of updating your children's bedrooms and need some inspiration? If you make a children’s space unique to them, they will love spending time in their bedrooms, creating magical spaces where little (and big) imaginations can truly thrive. Whether you're a seasoned home furnishing pro or just starting out, this blog is here to inspire you with 8 enchanting themes for your children’s bedroom projects.


Safari and Jungle Theme


Browse Fabrics Galore's Jungle Fabrics

This theme is a fantastic way to introduce children to the wonders of the animal kingdom. Think bold animal prints, lush greenery, and cheeky monkeys swinging from the curtains. Don't be afraid to explore different prints like leopard for cushions or a zebra striped bedhead. An upholstered chair in a leafy print could be the perfect finishing touch for this wild and wonderful theme and will still look good as they grow up.

Sealife Theme


Dive into the deep with a sealife theme. From playful whales to colourful tropical fish, there are so many beautiful creatures to feature. Consider using blues and greens for curtains and blinds, perhaps with a coral reef pattern. Cushions could feature turtles, seahorses, or even a friendly octopus!


Sea Life Fabrics


London Theme



Remember that great day out to the big city? This iconic city offers endless inspiration. You could use classic London symbols like the red double-decker buses, Big Ben, or London Zoo. Consider a cityscape for curtains, and iconic symbols for cushions. A re-upholstered chair in a Union Jack print could be a stunning centrepiece and will last from toddlerhood to pre-teen, easy peasy. 


British Icons Fabric Collection


Woodland/Countryside Theme


Create a cosy retreat with a woodland theme. This is a great option for young children. Think earthy tones, rustic prints, and lots of furry woodland creatures. A bedhead upholstered in a fox or deer print could be a charming addition, while curtains and blinds could feature a peaceful forest scene.

Stars and Stripes

This classic theme is both bold and versatile for teenagers. Stripes are perfect for curtains and blinds, while cushions could feature a starry night sky. For a fun twist, why not upholster a chair in a funky star print? With so many options you can mix and match to their favourites to make it a really personal space.



    Furnishing Stars and Stripes Fabrics

    Nautical Theme


    Bring the seaside in with a nautical theme. Think shades of blue, white, and red, with patterns like anchors, ropes, and boats. A re-upholstered chair in a sailor stripe could be the perfect reading nook, while curtains could feature a calming seascape.

      Space Theme


      So many children are fascinated with the night sky and it is a recurring favourite. This theme is perfect for inspiring young astronauts. Use dark blues and purples for a night sky effect, with stars and planets scattered across curtains and blinds. Cushions could feature rockets, astronauts or even friendly aliens. How about a chair upholstered in a galaxy print?





        This theme is a timeless classic. Use soft pastels for a more traditional look, or bold, bright colours for a modern twist. Curtains could feature a beautiful blossom print, while cushions could showcase a variety of flowers. A chair re-upholstered in a leafy print could be a lovely addition.
